Human Variation provides a state-of-the-art view of human genetic variation and what we can infer from it, surveying the genetic diversity seen in Africa, Europe, the Americas, and India.

The contributors discuss what this can tell us about human history and how it can be used to improve human. Discarding race as misleading, Human Variation: Races, Types, and Ethnic Groups examines the biology of human variation at the population level.

It argues that diversity is a reflection of humans' ability to adapt to environments, organize activities, and regulate breeding behavior. This book reviews the history, behavior, and demography of contemporary populations and the. What are the causes of human variation.

The two main causes of human variation are genetics and environment. The only constant is change. Genetics can create variation by the following: * Random evolutionary selection of genes based on environmen. Genetics is the scientific study of inherited genetics, then, is the scientific study of inherited human variation.

Why study human genetics. One reason is simply an interest in better understanding ourselves. As a branch of genetics, human genetics concerns itself with what most of us consider to be the most interesting species on earth: Homo sapiens.

Discarding the concept of race as misleading, this book examines the biological basis for human variation and biological diversity at the population level—appropriate because of the many ways in which humans can adapt to environments, organize activities, and regulate breeding behavior.

This text explores human biological variation in its broadest sense--from the molecular to the physiological and morphological--focusing on the micro-evolutionary analysis of genetic variation among recent human populations/5(3).

Human variability refers to the fact that there is a range of possible values for each of the numerous physical and mental characteristics of human beings.

Fundamental Characteristic. Variation is, in fact, inherent in every living species. It is the result of fundamental biological and environmental processes, and it is an important trait in ensuring the vitality of .Human genetic variation is the genetic differences in and among may be multiple variants of any given gene in the human population (), a situation called two humans are genetically identical.
